Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden Hello

Happy Sunday, thanks for stopping by!  My share today is from the FREE Avant Garden stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Wow, do I love this set.  It is my first time using it, and I already have another card in mind for it!  

 

Avant Garden

This is a very clean and simple card to do, it came together in just a few minutes.  We all need those cards every now and then, right?  I started with a Wild Wasabi card base and stamped the dotted images from Avant Garden all over it in the same colored ink.  

Avant Garden

 

Next, I went to work creating my “garden”.  I stamped the flower image from Avant Garden in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach, stamping off some of them to get different shades of color. The flower centers are stamped in Soft Suede ink.   Then, I added the leaf images,  randomly stamping in Wild Wasabi ink.  I added the Hello sentiment from Flourishing Phrases, in Soft ink.  I chose a pattern from the Playful Palette DSP stack and adhered it at angle onto the base with liquid glue.  The art panel was then popped onto the front with dimenstionals.  

 

Avant Garden

 

I added some more flowers and leaves to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel and adhered it with liquid glue for the inside.  Violá, very quick and easy!  Now, don’t  you love this set, too?  Remember, with any $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration, this set can be yours for FREE, too!

Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Thank You

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Bundle and the All Things Thanks stamp set to create my card for today.  

Special Reason

 

The inspiration for the card design is from CAS(E) this Sketch #205.  I hope you’ll check out the other cards there and try your hand at the sketch, too.  

CTS #205

 

I started with a panel of Crumb Cake card stock and stamped You’re The Best from All Things Thanks in Versa Mark ink.  Then I sprinkled the sentiment with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Once it had cooled, I adhered it to my Island Indigo card stock base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  

 

Special Reason

Next, I pulled out the large flower die from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and cut my Whisper White panel.  Then, I die cut the stem and leaves also from that die set, in Mint Macaron card stock.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a panel of Blooms and Bliss DSP with liquid glue, then adhered both of those panels to a slightly larger panel of Mint Macaron card stock.  The stem and leaves were glued down with a little of the stem extending over the edge.  I tied a strand of Linen Thread around all 3 layers and then popped that art panel onto the front of the card with dimensionals.

 

Special Reason

 

For the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment from All Things Thanks in Versa Mark ink and added White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I really wanted to stamp one of the  flower images from Special Reason, so I decided to add a small flower to the inside.  

 

Special Reason

To make it look mottled like the flower on the front, I stamped it first in Mint Macaron ink, then pulled out my blender pen and added some Island Indigo ink all over it.  The leaves are dies from Stylish Stems die cut in Mint Macaron.  

If you do not have the Special Reason Bundle, I encourage you to get it, you will love it!  It’s found on page 42 of the Occasions Catalog.  If you have not seen the YouTube video on the framelits, HERE it is for you to view.  

 

You will find a complete list of products as well as card stock cuts in inches at the end of my post.

Cool Treats for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Inkin' Thursday

It’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday, and I am sharing a card that features the Cool Treats Bundle from Stampin’ Up!  This week we have a sketch challenge. 

Happy Inkin' Thursday Cool

 

Here is my take on the sketch with Cool Treats

Cool

 

I started with a panel of Crumb Cake for my card base.  Next, I cut two different panels from the Tasty Treats DSP and adhered them to a panel of Pool Party with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then, I cut a panel of Burlap Ribbon and attached it to the front and back with Tear & Tape adhesive.

 

Cool

 

Then, it was time for the fun part-the stamping!  I stamped three scoops of ice cream using the scoop stamp from Cool Treats.  I used Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, and Crumb Cake ink. The chocolate topping and cherry stems were stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and the cherries in Watermelon Wonder.   Then, all were die cut using the Frozen Treats Framelits.  This set has 17 dies and when you purchase them with Cool Treats, you save 10%.  Add any of the items from the Cool Treats Suite found on pages 32 and 33 and you can choose a free product from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!  Yippee!!

The sentiment was stamped using the ink to rubber method, where I colored the letters with my Stampin’ Write markers, huffed on them a couple of times and then stamped onto a panel of Whisper White.  The banner was die cut with a die from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlets.  

The Oval was cut with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies(now orderable!!) For the scalloped Crumb Cake rectangle, I first cut a square from one of the largest dies from the Layering Squares Framelits, then, cut off one side a little more to create a rectangle.  

Cool

The inside sentiments are also from Cool Treats, and I used Peekaboo Peach and Pool Party ink.

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love for Catalog Launch

I am a little late in posting this as my 2017 Catalog Launch Open House was a few days ago, but life has been a little hectic!  I am sharing a card my attendees made using the Sealed With Love Bundle. The inspiration for this card came directly from the Occasions catalog.  Sometimes, it just is too easy to find inspiration there, especially when you are planning games, making gift bags, cutting card stock, cleaning, and, well you understand!

 

With Love

I started with the spotted Gorgeous Grunge stamp, using the stamping off technique so that the Soft Sky ink would be very subtle on the Whisper White art panel.  Then, I used the solid heart from the Sealed With Love stamp set and randomly stamped a few full strength and a few that had been stamped off all around the panel.  The sentiment was stamped full strength in Soft Sky ink.  

With Love

Next, I stamped the Love Note in Real Red ink and cut it out with the coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies. Then I chose two panels from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack for the envelopes and die cut them, too.  One was sealed with liquid glue and the other left open for the Love Note to peek out.  

With Love

The open heart was die cut with one of the Love Notes Dies in Real Red and for the arrow, I used Gold Foil.  The wooden heart is one of the Sending Love Embellishments. 

With Love

The inside sentiment is also from Sealed With Love, and it and the lips were stamped in Real Red ink.  

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so time to get the Sealed With Love Bundle and get busy stamping!  When you order the bundle and the DSP, you will have the chance to order one FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!  

Here are a couple of shots of the ladies working on their cards

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up Thank You

I used the Stampin’ Up Lift Me Up Bundle and the All Things Thanks stamp set to create a thank you card today, thus the Lift Me Up Thank You title! 

 

Lift Me Up thank you

 

I started by adhering a panel of the Carried Away DSP (free during Sale-A-Bration) to my Whisper White card stock base.  Next, I stamped a large Night of Navy hot air balloon, and a small Watermelon Wonder and a small Peekaboo Peach balloon onto Whisper White Thick cardstock.  Then I cut them out with the coordinating dies.  

 

Lift Me Up Thank You

I stamped the large cloud images from Lift Me Up in Night of Navy, onto a  panel of Whisper White, and the sentiment in Peekaboo Peach.  I cut another panel of Peekaboo Peach and attached it to my art panel with liquid glue.  

 

Lift Me Up Thank You

 

Then, I cut a length of the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon, attached it to the front with Tear & Tape and adhered the art panel over it with dimensionals.  The balloons were added last with dimensionals, also.  

Lift Me Up Thank You

I had some fun on the inside stamping those hot air balloons-I really love this set.  The sentiment is from All Things Thanks and is stamped in Peekaboo Peach.  I matted the art panel with Mint Macaron.

Quick and easy Lift Me Up Thank You card!

Card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! So In Love Anniversary Card for FMS 270

Today, I am sharing an anniversary card using the So In Love Bundle from the  2017 Occasions catalog.  The Falling in Love Suite is found on pages 50-52, and there are so many beautiful items to choose from!  

 

So in Love

 

The inspiration for my sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches FMS #270

MS 270 Anniversary

First, I stamped the happy anniversary sentiment from So In Love in Soft Suede onto a panel of Very Vanilla. Then, I attached that panel onto my Soft Suede card stock base.  

Anniversary

 

Next, I used the large lacy So Detailed Thinlet Die to cut a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I adhered the cut out to a panel of the Falling In Love DSP with liquid glue and wrapped a length of Very Vanilla Satin ribbon around it, securing it in a few spots with Tear & Tape adhesive.  Once the bow was tied I added a couple of Glue Dots to make sure it wasn’t going to slip around.  

Anniversary

I used a strand of Silver Thread to tie the Falling In Love Embellishment to the existing bow and popped that panel onto the front with dimensionals.  

Anniversary

I inked up the flower image from So In Love in Soft Suede ink and stamped off twice before actually stamSoping the flower on the lower left corner.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment and even stamped it twice in Soft Suede so that it would be bold on the Very Vanilla panel.  

I made an anniversary card, but you could also make a Valentine, a congratulations or a wedding card with this set. Mix and match it and even make a beautiful birthday card–the sky is the limit with this set!

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Valentine for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday

Happy Inkin’ Thursday, we are back with a new name, but, with the same players!  Today, I am sharing a card using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies, some help from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets, the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the Sealed With Love Bundle.  

Our color challenge this week is Real Red, Whisper White and Gold… 

 

Sunshine Wishes for Happy Inkin' thursday

….so, I made a Valentine:

 

Sunshine Wishes

My card front has no stamping, but with the help of the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets, I die cut the love sentiment in Gold Glimmer Paper. In fact, I cut out two just to give it a little more pop.  This paper is really thick, so you need to run it through the big shot several times for the die to cut it all out.  I die cut the heart from the Love Notes Framelits Dies in Real Red. I cut some of the letter “o” off before attaching the heart to the rest of the word with liquid glue. 

 

Sunshine Wishes

 

The large Whisper White heart was die cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies and placed in the Happy Heart TIEF, then dry embossed.  Next, I die cut the arrow and “open” heart using my Love Notes Framelits Dies and more Gold Glimmer Paper.  I pulled out the die from my Mini Treat Bag Thinlets that creates a line of hearts for the banner.  Again, I had to run it through the Big Shot several times because that Glimmer Paper is so thick.  The small hearts were popped out so that I could use them on the front.  One end of the banner was notched using my Banner Triple Punch.

 

Sunshine Wishes

I pulled out a piece of my Pop of Pink DSP for the other banner and also used the Banner Triple Punch to notch one end.  To add just a little more interest, I cut a length of Gold Metallic Thread and wound it around, attaching it with dimensionals before popping the large heart on the front, also with dimensionals.  

 

sunshine Wishes

For my inside sentiment, I went back to my Sealed With Love stamp set, stamping two of the images in Real Red.   

A complete list of supplies for my Sunshine Wishes Valentine and card stock cuts in inches are at the end of my post.  


Now, on to the rest of the hop.  Kristi is next in line, so make sure to check out her creation for today!

Joining Stampin’ Up! is one of the best things I have ever done.  I love the products and Demonstrator Support is excellent.  When I joined two years ago during Sale-A-Bration, I loved the fact that I got extra stamp sets and got $125 dollars worth of product for $99, and there was free shipping.  That is always a draw for me-I love free shipping!  Also, there was no pressure to sell anything, plus I got a discount on all of my purchases.  Yippee!! I have a super up-line, Amy Koenders, who has encouraged me since day one!

I started out using a scrap piece of paper to stamp all sorts of possibilities for these three images, and the umbrella from the Weather Together stamp set.  Once I decided on how I wanted it to look, I stamped each of the Hey, Chick images in Basic Gray onto a panel of Shimmery White Card Stock.  Then, I stamped the raindrops, also from Weather Together, in Basic Gray ink.  I wanted the umbrella to appear to be under the rooster’s wing, so, I made a mask of his wing with a post-it note.  Once I cut out the wing part, I adhered it over his real wing and then stamped the handle of the umbrella.

Next, I stamped the canopy of the umbrella in Basic Gray right above the handle onto my Shimmery White card stock. I also stamped the canopy onto a panel of Watermelon Wonder polka dot paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Paper Stacks and used the coordinating die to cut it out. This is called Paper Piecing.  Adds some interest, doesn’t it?  

My next step was to begin the coloring process on the rooster, the egg and the hen.  So, I pulled out my new Watercolor Pencils (SO FUN), and began to lightly blend each image.   I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso and Basic Gray.

The sentiment, also from Hey Chick, was stamped with Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Basic Gray, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I then cut it out with the small oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  

My card base is Watermelon Wonder. The next layer, from Carried Away DSP (also free during Sale-A-Bration), was adhered with glue.  The art panel was framed with Basic Gray card stock and then popped onto the front with dimensionals.  

 

Hey Chick

 

So, for the inside, I could not leave out this crazy image!  I am told by a team member that he is a Silkie breed rooster.  I looked it up on a website she suggested and found this picture of one called a Top Hat Special.  Crazy fun!!

 

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Window Shopping & All Things Thanks

I combined the Window Shopping and All Things Thanks stamp sets, from the 2017 Occasions Catalog, to create a thank you card for my share for today.  

 

Window Shopping

 

The inspiration for the design of my card is from Fab Friday 103.  

FabFri103 Window Shopping

 

I started by inking up the sentiment from Window Shopping in Versa Mark ink.  I stamped it onto a panel of Crumb Cake and sprinkled Copper Embossing Powder over it and heat embossed the image.  Then, I wrapped a length of Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow.  

 

Window shopping

 

A panel of Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP was adhered to a panel of Copper Foil with glue, then adhered to the Night of Navy card base.  I cut two different panels from the Affectionately Yours DSP and layered them unevenly, then popped the sentiment panel on with dimensionals.

 

Window Shopping

For the inside, I chose a sentiment from the All Things Thanks stamp set and stamped it in Versa Mark and then sprinkled it with Copper Embossing Powder. Once it was heat embossed, I added some trim to the bottom panel and adhered them all to the inside with glue.  

Window Shopping can also be purchased as a bundle with the new Window Box Thinlets Dies, they both can be found on page 43 of the Occasions Catalog.  Look for an upcoming post with this new set of dies!  

A complete list of products and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Join Stampin’ Up! During Sale-A-Bration!  

I received both of these stamp sets I used today for free, last fall at the OnStage Atlanta event.  This is a demonstrator event where we learn about the upcoming catalog products, learn new techniques, win prizes in the prize patrol, and have fun with fellow demonstrators.  Stampin’ Up! offers these events regionally so demonstrators from all over the country (and world) can attend one close to their homes.  This spring, our regional event will be in Savannah, GA, so most of our team will be attending.

Wouldn’t you like to join my team and be a part of my upline, Amy Koenders, team, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew?  We have members from all over the country and are able to meet via the internet when getting together in person is impossible . We meet via Google hangouts once a month, and in person, once a quarter (those of us not too far away). At our quarterly meetings, we have lunch, meet with others who could not make it via Goole Hangouts, and stamp fun projects together.   We can share ideas, ask questions, and share projects we have made. We also have a Facebook group where we interact daily with one another.

There are so many advantages to becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  Questions?  I am happy to answer them. Contact me at cardiologybyjari @gmail.com  You can also read more of the fine print HERE.
